I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-confessed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area ... or not.

    I was due for a upgrade, so I’m glad that Verizon got the DNA. I think the Droid DNA has more than enough speed and power to back up the 1080p display. I have a DNA, and I can’t begin to explain how good shows look on it. I like using the DISH Remote Access app, which lets me stream live TV through the Sling Adapter I have connected to my receiver. The app is useful when I can’t be home to watch my shows since it works anywhere. One of my DISH coworkers also has a Droid DNA, and we can both agree that there is no better phone to
    watch TV on.
